Spotlight on taking a break

Carers UK staff will post regularly here to share our work and invite discussion. Also you can post questions for our expert panel to answer on Carers Rights Day - 25 November
Good morning – I’m Jane (and I work at Carers UK). I just wanted to highlight some of our information resources on ways to take a break, such as our video series [https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... ke-a-break] and accompanying guidance [https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... ng-a-break].

With many services still not operating as before, there is also support on creating a contingency plan here which might be helpful: https://carersdigital.org/mybackup/.
If you have any questions, we will try our best to help answer them! Thank you, Jane

Thanks Jane for sharing this information on ways for carers to take a break.

I also wanted to highlight a video recording of one of our Share & Learn sessions which focused on 'Carers breaks and benefits'. The session was recorded in August 2021 and features Priya and Liz from our Helpline team who explore how to request breaks from your caring role, and how breaks from caring can impact your welfare benefits.

I hope you find the video helpful
